“Brings Ayurveda, and all of its healing power, into the 21st century” Ravinder Bhogal, writer, chef & TV presenter
Health journalist and sceptic Eminé Rushton was converted to an Ayurvedic approach during pregnancy, when she discovered how eating and living according to the ancient Indian principles of Ayurveda rebalances the body for the better. Ayurveda teaches that we each have a dosha – a basic body type that defines our personality and physical wellbeing, from the foods we crave to those that spark intolerances and increase weight gain. This book decodes this 5,000-year-old science of wellbeing specifically for busy, modern lives. It shows just how simple and practical a body-balancing seasonal lifestyle can be, helping you beat stress, lose excess weight and feel energized and positive every day.
Ayurveda for Modern Life guides your through the process of determining your dosha type, and teaches how to eat for your own dosha and make your body feel light, vital, energized and well again. It offers a simple 3-day nutrition plan, as well as 20 delicious, seasonal recipes that can be made using ordinary supermarket ingredients. This ultimate guide to living the Ayurveda way also includes expert advice from leading nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik, TCM practitioner Annee de Mamiel and the founder of The Organic Pharmacy, Margo Marrone.
